Title: The Spiral of Containment: Rape’s Aftermath
Photography / True stories / Non-fiction
Written by: Elisa L. Iannacone
Release Date: 20th February 2018


Photojournalist and cinematographer Elisa L. Iannacone writes, and visually captures, what it’s like to be the survivor of sexual abuse.



When cinematographer Elisa L. Iannacone was raped by a family member in Mexico, she responded by travelling the world to meet 24 survivors who had also suffered from sexual violence.


She doesn’t refer to them by name, but by their own dedicated colour in the spectrum. Their stories, combined with Elisa’s empowering conceptual photographs, share trauma’s darkest shadows and the truth of their experience across the world.
